As the Covid-19 pandemic has swept across the world, businesses have been caught off guard, as governments have implemented varying degrees of safe distancing measures. Supply chains have been disrupted and manufacturers are facing an uphill battle on many fronts.
While Industry 4.0 and digital transformation have gained much attention over the past several years, manufacturers have historically been slow to adopt such technologies. However, in recent years, that has been changing, but with the onset of Covid-19, manufacturers now have to face up to their shortcomings, especially when it comes to real-time visibility across the business.
Through the ‘Covid-19 Digitalisation Roadmap,’ Industrial Automation Asia (IAA) seeks to help manufacturers make more informed decisions about digital transformation with the view to creating a more resilient manufacturing sector.
